After a winding courtship with multiple teams across the NFL and a pretty weird possible barfight detour, former New York Jets WR Braylon Edwards has landed (get it!) a one-year, $3.5 million deal with the San Francisco 49ers, according to Adam Schefter. Edwards reportedly met with San Fran the night before, and evidently saw something he liked in the process.
Edwards contributed 904 yards to the Jets 2010 AFC Championship run after coming over in a midseason trade from the Cleveland Browns. He's produced 5,142 yards on 326 catches for his career, earning appearances on some All-Pro teams in 2007.
He'll be expected to help beef up a Niners passing game that ranked in the lower half -- barely! -- last year, with youngsters Vernon Davis, Michael Crabtree and Josh Morgan helping to form what could be a decent assortment of weaponry.
